New data from the federal government show that monthly premiums for health insurance plans sold on the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov, will increase by an average of 25 percent in 2017.

The Department of Health and Human Services released a report Monday analyzing the state and federal health insurance exchanges ahead of the fourth open

The fact that the national debt jumped by $1.4 trillion in one short year should spur Congress to put an end to this excess.

UPDATE: Frankenpension Should Frighten Taxpayers

Call to Action

UPDATE: On Monday, the Independent Fiscal Office (IFO) released their analysis of the Conference Committee Amendment (A10803) to SB 1071. The IFO report confirms what we said last week (see below). According to the IFO, the Amendment would result in relatively little benefit to taxpayers. The headline number that Sen. Pat Browne, architect of this amendment, will trot out is a $2.6 billion savings over the next 30 years. And, that certainly sounds impressive until you consider that figure in terms of present day dollars. When looked at in terms of today’s dollars, the savings amounts to $209.3 million or 0.37 percent of the current unfunded liability.

When dealing with numbers of this magnitude, it is often helpful to

Consumers will be hit by increases in health insurance premiums averaging 10 percent or more in all but one of 14 states where regulators have approved higher rates.

In Vermont, insurance rates will rise by an average of 5.5 percent.

Insurance companies submitted their rate proposals for 2017 over the past few months. In the lead-up to Obamacare’s open enrollment period beginning Nov. 1, regulators have begun to approve or alter the requests.

The Obama administration said insurance premiums will rise by double-digit percentages in 2017, a statement that will likely bring the debate surrounding Obamacare to the forefront in the final days of the 2016 election.

Premiums will increase at an average of 25 percent across the 39 states serviced by the online marketplace HealthCare.gov, according to the Obama administration. Even worse, around 20 percent of consumers, or 1 in 5, will have only one insurer to choose from in the marketplace.

This year’s expected increase is triple the size of 2016, and will have a direct

Obama administration regulations are 167 times longer than the Bible

The number of pages of regulations issued by the federal government during the Obama presidency has hit a record high, according to a count from the Federal Register.

President Obama’s administration has issued 28,239 new final rules encompassing 201,046 pages in the Federal Register.

The over 200,000 pages of Obama regulations are 167 times longer than the Bible, which averages about 1,200 pages.

President Barack Obama’s speech Thursday will likely highlight the “successes” of Obamacare, but this complex health law—with interlocking parts—is really becoming more like a patient suffering from multi-organ failure.

This year’s feverish health insurance premiums are unlikely to abate. For 2017, the premiums on Obamacare’s individual market are projected to increase by 25 percent on average.

Central planning is the disease.

It starts with the costly health

Senate approves Argall’s efforts to crack down on welfare fraud

 

HARRISBURG – By a vote of 29 – 18, the Senate of Pennsylvania approved a measure authored by Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) to increase the number of investigators tasked with finding welfare waste, fraud, abuse and misuse.

 

Under Argall’s amendment, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) would hire at least 50 percent additional staff with a single purpose: investigate fraud, waste, misconduct and abuse claims from the Department of Human Services and Department of Health.

 

“For every dollar spent on welfare investigative and collective activities in the OIG, the state realizes an estimated benefit of $12,” Argall said. “This program would pay for itself again and again. More
